Advanced Stats vs. Ohio Wesleyan

I finally got a chance to peek through the box score for this afternoon's win over the Battling Bishops of Ohio Wesleyan. Let's get to some of the stats.

Offense
I thought this was going to be a fun one to look at, and the chart didn't disappoint.

Bryan Powell! He's usually one to need a lot of shots to score a lot of points, but he was incredibly efficient today effectively shooting above 100%. He also chipped in to assist on nearly 30% of his teammates baskets, and only turned the ball over once. A very nice game, but not quite the game ball.

Tom Snikkers' performance capture's the top honors. The team desperately needs a go-to scorer, and Tommy stepped up to fill the role today. He took over 40% of the team's shots while he was on the floor, and was efficient in doing so. He effectively shot over 65% from the field, and he assisted on about 50% of his teammates baskets while he was in the game. It doesn't show up in this chart (maybe I should add it?), but he was the team's high rebounder. An all around great day for Mr. Snikkers.

I'd also like to point out how nice Brad Schnyders' PPWS numbers look when he makes his free throws. (PPWS measures how many points a player scores per attempt to score.) I don't think Brad is the type of player that will ever shoot a high percentage, but he's excellent at getting to the line, and so far this year he's been excellent at converting his free throws.

Adam DeYoung earns the grand distinction of an infinite free throw rate. He never attempted a shot in which he was not fouled.

Tyler Kruis also had a very strong showing in his college debut.

Just look at that bottom 'Team' line and write "crazy good" next to all of the numbers. Solid offensive game all the way around. Offensive efficiency (points per 100 possessions) for the game was 112.5.

That's an excellent day on defense too. Everything looks good, except for the free throw rate allowed, but the officials started calling a bunch of ticky-tack stuff after the game got chippy early on.

But even will all of the foul calls and free throws, Calvin held OWU to a paltry 0.782 PPWS. Part of that is because the Bishops are a very poor shooting team, but I'd like to think that Calvin forced them into a few bad shots.
